Haruto Kaguragi begins to act strange after learning that Oto Edogawa is engaged to Momonozono Academy student body president, Tenma Hase. Meanwhile, Airi Maya reveals to the whole school that Oto is actually a commoner, forcing Haruto to consider expelling her.
- "Haruto Kaguragi, leader of the most exclusive clique at Eitoku Academy, an elite school for the super rich, is most definitely not falling in love with Oto Edogawa, a poor student in fear of expulsion. But if not, then why does he feel so awful when he learns that she has a fiancé? And if jealousy really does tread in the footsteps of love, should Haruto be worried about how possessive fellow “Correct 5” member Airi has become of him?"
- —Viz description
After learning about Oto Edogawa's engagement, Haruto Kaguragi calls her life "pathetic" in his shock. In response, she tells him it has "nothing to do with [him]". He then visits Sugimaru Eibi, who tells him about the student body president of Momonozono Academy, Tenma Hase. Haruto begins feeling a strange "pain in [his] chest" and goes home. At the same time, Airi Maya informs Kaito Taira that she knows about Oto and has new information on her fiancé. Kaito rushes over to Haruto's house to reveal that Tenma is Oto's fiancé. Haruto instantly becomes sick and lies in bed for three days. Kaito visits him and questions if Haruto's "disease" is actually just him being in love with Oto.
Haruto denies being in love with Oto and begins acting moody soon after. Sugimaru later convinces him to "infiltrate" Momonozono to scope out the competition. They are quickly exposed and Tenma takes them into his information. After meeting Tenma, Haruto feels depressed. He finds himself outside Oto's work, where he asks her "Won't I do?" They are interrupted by her coworker Arisa Konno. She invites Oto and Haruto to her apartment for dinner, when he complains of a stomachache. On their way home, Haruto apologizes for being rude earlier. He then tells her, "Don't say that your life has absolutely nothing to do with me". Haruto later reflects that he wished he had been "more direct" about his feelings.
In a flashback, Airi relates how Haruto gained her admiration and love during a field trip in the third grade. Since then, Airi has done everything for his sake. Presently, she posts fliers around school that outs Oto as a "peasant." Airi then lies to Oto, saying Haruto asked her to do it. Oto feels betrayed and later yells "I don't ever want to see your face again!" at Haruto. Now home, Oto wants to tell her mother that she is planning to quit Eitoku. She puts if off, when her mother reminiscences about her deceased best friend. Oto then visits Tenma at his home to tell him that he "can be free" now. Tenma appears to have mixed feelings. Haruto later reluctantly agrees to do a "peasant hunt" on Oto.
The other students beat up Oto, supposedly on the Correct 5's orders. Meanwhile, Haruto admits that he "just can't take out" Oto. Airi decides to take the situation into her own hands. Haruto follows her and sees Oto lying on the ground. Tenma pushes the students away from Oto. He tells Haruto that he will "crush" him, if he hurts her again. At the hospital, Tenma confesses that he has real feelings for Oto. Haruto, in the meantime, agonizes over his inadvertent role in Oto getting hurt. He happens to meet the Rui Hanazawa and asks him "What would Mr. Domyoji do?" Rui answers that Tsukasa "only has eyes for what's most important." Haruto realizes what he must do and goes to see Oto.
Haruto recounts his meeting with Rui to Kaito, Sugimaru, and Issa. His story seems implausible to them, so they tell him he was imagining things They then walk off as Haruto chases after them. At the same time, Rui sneezes and Akira Mimasaka and Sojiro Nishikado ask him if he has caught a cold.
